Fulbright Participation in the Astra Film Festival in Sibiu

Fulbright Participation in the Astra Film Festival in Sibiu

Dr. Rebekah Jorgensen, Fulbright professor of documentary at U.N.A.T.C., attended the Astra Documentary Film Festival in Sibiu, October 16 to 22, 2017, where her Masters students spent the week learning about new approaches, marketing and distribution of documentary projects.

Besides viewing many of the excellent documentaries, both in and out of competition, Rebekah had the opportunity to interview Festival Founder and Director Dumitru Budrala and Artistic Director Csilla Cato about the evolution of documentaries in Romania and festival interest. Razvan Crisu Manea, Director of the "Video Bar", explained the innovative approach to maximizing attendees' ability to view additional films outside of screening. Two highlights were the meeting of the film team, archaeologists and the Romanian head prosecutor at the screening of "The Hunt for Transylvanian Gold" about the Dacian Gold scandals, and a Norwegian animated documentary, "The Man Who Knew 75 Languages", which explored the relationship of linguist Georg Sauerwein with Romanian Queen Elisabeta/Carmen Sylva (including his visit to her at Peles castle), and which was introduced by her great-nephew, Nicolae de Roumanie.
